The Legendary Lions vs. the Fists of Fury - a special one night only performance event
a one-night only performance
February 26, 2010 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Southern Exposure (SoEx) presents four solo exhibitions and projects by: Mike Lai, Genevieve Quick, Lacey Jane Roberts and Andy Vogt.
Mike Lai’s work explores his fascination with Kung Fu genre films, and in particular Bruce Lee. Interested in how these films have influenced Asian cultural identities through extreme spectacle, Lai’s work incorporates these performative strategies as a way to question cultural implications. For his solo exhibition at Southern Exposure, Lai juxtaposes the traditional with the contemporary in The Legendary Lions versus the Fists of Fury. In a one-night performance, traditional lion dancers and Chinese musicians will face off with Bruce Lee’s life-sized fists accompanied by a local scratch DJ in an epic battle to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
*This project is a one-night only performance scheduled to take place on Friday, February 26, 2010, 8 pm. Doors open at 7:30pm. Stay tuned for more info.
